Jeff asks: “The power steering did not work the other day when I started my 2015 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck. However, if I shut off the engine and then restated it, it appeared to be working. This has happened several times. Any ideas?”
The Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck is equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) system and is not hydraulically operated as in many earlier pickup trucks. General Motors has issued a recall to correct the issue that can cause the loss of power steering assist. From the technical information, the cause appears to be related to a poor electrical connection within the steering gear connector that can cause a loss of power steering assist.
